Bugatti Crash Driver Facing 20 Years in Prison

That’s right. Apparently wrecking a million super exotic car is actually a bad idea. In 2009 Andy Lee House was on of the first people to own the Bugatti Veyron supercar made by the Germans. He was also one of the first people to wreck one… well probably the first.

Andy bought the car for $1 million and later had it insured for $2.2 million. Less than a month later he went careening into a salt lake in Texas, leaving the engine running to suck up all the nasty water and cause irreparable damage to the 16 cylinder engine.

In his original statement, Andy told police that he has swerved to avoid a low flying pelican. Unfortunately for him, and much to our delight, a few young fellas were recording the exotic car siting. No pelican can be found. He then changed his story to say that he was reaching for his cell phone and lost control of the vehicle. A likely story, Andy.

Further investigation revealed that he had previously tried to bribe someone to crash the Bugatti Veyron for him. Well, you know what they say: when you want something done right you gotta do it yourself.

Andy pleaded guilty to wire fraud in court and now faces up to 20 years in prison.
